    Merry Christmas T.C.

    Slim pickens on the East side with guys buying Smeal's and what not!!!!!!!!!!

    No, I'm home but a few years ago we were trying to get a 1500 Hale to pump 1500 at 11,000 feet and it just wouldn't happen. Had to derate it to 1250. Drop down to 6,000 feet and it was fine.

    Have a safe and merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Adds fifty RPM at altitude.Get all you can get.And quit blaming the one guy who's on your side for your(collectively)inability to interpret one simple term;Spartan with foam.Remember you've got to work off your excesses after New Years,so if you go easy now you'll be in fighting trim by the time we see you in PA later this Spring.And Merry Christmas to you and yours,T.C.

    Default Crimson vs. Rosenbauer

    Our department has just taken deliery of a Rosenbauer 75 Ft. Quint. I did tons of research on aerials for some time prior to our purchasing this unit. I feel this unit is as good as any I have seen. I have looked at just about all brand name units and I feel Rosenbauer offers more bang for the buck(just as you said) than any I have looked at. I dont have any first hand info on the Crimson, but I have seen some things they offer that I liked. Getting whats best for you department and community dollar is what its all about. Make sure you speck it to your department needs not the dealers sales pitch.

    God Bless
